About Us

The Estate Planning Council of Hampden County, Inc. is organized merely to provide a forum for current, accurate and authoritative information with regard to estate and financial planning.  Neither the officers nor directors of The Estate Planning Council of Hampden County, Inc. nor any particular speaker is engaged in rendering legal, accounting or other professional service.  If legal advice or other expert assistance is required, the services of a competent professional should be sought.

Our Beginnings

In early 1966, a group of Greater Springfield lawyers, trust officers, life insurance representatives and accountants joined to form the "Estate Planning Council of Hampden County."  The original roster of  members was comprised of 23 professionals from these five groups.

Council members are life insurance professionals, bankers, fiduciaries, lawyers, accountants, planned giving professionals, and other select financial service providers engaged in the planning, settlement and management of estates. Expertise is not a criterion for membership in the Council. Therefore, membership in the council by any member does not imply expertise.

Objectives of the Council
  1. To provide Council members with a better understanding of the estate planning, settlement and management services which life insurance professionals, bankers, fiduciaries, lawyers, accountants, planned giving professionals, and other select financial service providers engaged in the planning, settlement and management of estates can render to the general public.
  2. To increase the public’s awareness of the facilities and services available to aid individuals in the management, planning and settlement of their estates.
  3. To promote cooperation between each of the groups above mentioned and to foster a better understanding of the proper relationship which each group bears to the other, to their clients and to the general public.
